Cassandra vs RavenDB: What are the differences?
What is Cassandra? A partitioned row store. Rows are organized into tables with a required primary key. Partitioning means that Cassandra can distribute your data across multiple machines in an application-transparent matter. Cassandra will automatically repartition as machines are added and removed from the cluster. Row store means that like relational databases, Cassandra organizes data by rows and columns. The Cassandra Query Language (CQL) is a close relative of SQL.
What is RavenDB? *A NoSQL Database that's fully transactional *. As a document database it remains true to the core principles of these type of storage mechanisms. Somehow it managed to combine the best of relational databases with that of document databases.
Cassandra and RavenDB can be categorized as "Databases" tools.
Cassandra and RavenDB are both open source tools. It seems that Cassandra with 5.34K GitHub stars and 2.36K forks on GitHub has more adoption than RavenDB with 2.28K GitHub stars and 723 GitHub forks.
According to the StackShare community, Cassandra has a broader approval, being mentioned in 431 company stacks & 1388 developers stacks; compared to RavenDB, which is listed in 7 company stacks and 4 developer stacks.
